A LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE BEEN UP TO

the sisters and i took a trip to visit anya
(Elder Crossley baptized her about 6 months ago)
(today was transfer day we lost Sisters Jadamba and Ellison they went to Kharkiv, we will miss them)

Larissa,Sister Clark, Tanya, MashaWe had a fun going home party for Elder and Sister Clark after English Class

This is just a few of the branch members who came.

The Clark's are going home to Orem Utah this Thursday. I can't imagine this mission without them. They have been great friends and the missionaries love them.

Sister Tumi-Ochir went home to Mongolia
we will miss her

We had a few fun days of apartment inspections
I forgot my camera at Elders McArthur and Steeles's apartment and look what they left us.
IT IS A PICTURE OF A KING AND A EWE
it says, "we love ewe"
how sweet!!!!

These two live in the penthouse. It reminds me of an abandoned building I played in when I was a kid

Elder Johnson baptized this sweet, wonderful girl Jenya.

Everybody loves her. It was so great to see the Young Adults welcome her into the branch

enjoying the incredible transformation our city takes when it begins to get COLD
(the lake behind our dome has frozen over and they are ice fishing on it now)

this is a view from the opposite side of the bridge from where Bruce is standing. If you look closely you can see the smoke coming from a coal mine nearby. This is on our walk home from the store. It got so cold I started to run to hurry and get to our dome.
